Greetings all. I’m in the process of switching over as much / all of any existing usage I have with snaps to flatpaks. I went to do that this morning for Bitwarden when I found the page I was surprised and impressed that the publisher was listed as 8bit Solutions, LLC.
But because it’s my password keeper I was not willing to take that on face value so I had to do some digging.
There is no reference (that I could find) on their download page to the Flatpak. Further it does not appear as though anyone from 8bit Solutions, LLC. is “approving” merges into the repo that builds the Flatpak. Further it uses some common, shared libraries submodule that is also not in anyway managed by 8bit Solutions LLC.
I think saying that the publisher for that Flatpak is at best incorrect and at worst dangerous.
I think it should be listed as Flatpak Community for 8bit Solutions LLC or there should be two entries on that page: package creator (Flatpak Community) and content originator (8bit Solutions LLC). Or something along those lines.
